[N] Udacity had an interventional meeting with Siraj Raval on content theft for his AI course

[N] Udacity had an interventional meeting with Siraj Raval on content theft for his AI course

According to Udacity insiders Mat Leonard @MatDrinksTea and Michael Wales @walesmd:

Siraj has a habit of stealing content and other people’s work. That he is allegedly scamming these students does not surprise me one bit. I hope people in the ML community stop working with him.

Oh no, not when working with us. We literally had an intervention meeting, involving multiple Directors, including myself, to explain to you how non-attribution was bad. Even the Director of Video Production was involved, it was so blatant that non-tech pointed it out.

If I remember correctly, in the same meeting we also had to explain why Pepe memes were not appropriate in an educational context. This was right around the time we told you there was absolutely no way your editing was happening and we required our own team to approve.

And then we also decided, internally, as soon as the contract ended; @MatDrinksTea would be redoing everything.
